Out-News = Super Yacht Collision South East Italy

Super Yacht Blue Magic hits the news after a technical mishap collided it into hitting and then sinking to what looks a seven meter fiberglass build sailing cruiser during its marina maneuvering in Santa Marina di Leuca.  Thankfully the incident left none injured, but passers by where outraged on the coldness of one of the crew who just dropped the mast on the sinking craft without checking if anyone was hurt.  Some news sources are also claiming the sailing boat was in the spot to be scrapped.  M/Y Blue Magic seems to have hit some technical difficulty in gear engagement and in the instance kept on pushing forward hitting and sinking the small sailing craft on its bow.
Blue Magic is a 47 meter build by Dutch super yacht builder Heesen in 1998 to a design of Dutch firm Mulder.  Blue Magic was last refitted in 2017 and her twin MTU 3700hp engines make her reach a top speed up to 24 knots and a cruise of 17 gives a one thousand nautical miles range.
